 The Smithville Board of Aldermen have approved a contract with WCA for solid waste removal effective January 1, 2017.  The contract includes the collection of residential trash, recycling and yard waste*.  Residents can register with  WCA to opt out of recycling or to opt in to yard waste pick-up.  Registering will also provide WCA with contact information for any service issues.  The City regulates the collection of residential solid waste with  Ordinance 532 adopted in 1973.

 What Will Change:

  • Residents will receive a 65-gallon container for trash
  • Residents will receive a second container for recycling, also 65-gallon capacity, (with a yellow lid) – residents can opt out of recycling
  • Yard waste will be picked up curbside – must be in compostable bags or bundled. Bundles cannot exceed 3 feet in length.
  • Containers will be collected/dumped with a remote arm from the truck
  • Containers must be set properly at the curb (wheels/handle away from curb)

    Trash and recycling carts must be separated by three (3) feet in distance or placed on opposite sides of the driveway.

  • Only what will fit inside the provided container will be collected – no additional “extra bags”
  • A second trash container can be provided – with an additional cost to the resident of $5.00 per month
  • Only 3 holidays will affect service – Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years
  • Cost of service will be $17.87 monthly (trash/recycling & yard waste included - residents must "opt-in" for yard waste)

  What Won’t Chance:

  • You will be billed as part of your Utility Bill with the City of Smithville
  • Trash/recycling must be curbside by 7AM

 What Might Change:

  • Your trash day (see maps above).
